At 4:30 in room 186, Cornell ELS and the Career Services office are pleased to host practitioners from the New York State Bar Association Environmental Practice Group for a panel presentation and networking event.
Current practitioners will give brief presentations regarding diversity of practice areas, followed by a short film of a Department of Environmental Conservation Inspection. After the film ends, students will have the opportunity to meet, chat, and network with attorneys from a variety of practice areas, geographic locations, and firms.
This event should be an informative and fun opportunity to learn about environmental practice and meet attorneys who will be future colleagues, mentors, and supervisors.
Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
